PORTSMOUTH – A Portsmouth man has been arrested after police said he got in an accident while driving drunk with two small children in the car.
Christopher Serlin was arrested Tuesday night after police responded to a report of an accident on 383 Dennett Street.
Serlin is a former Democratic state representative from Portsmouth.
When officers arrived, witnesses said a truck hit a parked car and took off.
A second call came to police of an accident down the street from the initial call.
Police arrived on Mill Pond to find a large pickup truck had struck another vehicle and there were two children inside the car.
Police identified Serlin as the driver of the first accident and arrested Serlin at the scene.
He was charged with one count of aggravated driving while intoxicated, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of conduct after an accident.
Serlin is expected to appear in court in January.
He served in the House from 2004-2008 and 2010-2012.
